Freema Agyeman is known to Doctor Who fans as Martha Jones, the Tenth Doctor’s companion who has the unfortunate distinction of falling in love with him while he pointedly ignored her feelings for him. She also has the more favorable distinction of being the only black companion to the Doctor in the fifty year history of the show. Fans alternately applaud her performance and bash the writer’s avoidance of issues surrounding having a companion of color. Spending time with Freema was fun and enlightening in so many ways.
My coverage of Freema is split over Saturday and Sunday of the convention. Please enjoy!
